Course Description

In this course, you will explore the emerging initiatives in technology to actively recruit and hire individuals on the Autism Spectrum. The course will encourage you to assess implications for human resource policies and practices in this area. You will then look into the opportunities and challenges encountered across the employment process in designing and implementing these kinds of initiatives, and evaluate the importance of creating a workplace culture that embraces a diverse workforce, including individuals with disabilities, and those who are neuro-atypical.

This course focuses on effective recruitment, screening, selection, orientation, on-the-job training, and preparatory supervisor and workforce training for neurodiverse employees. You will build a workplace culture inclusive of individuals who are neurodiverse with considerations for career advancement, retention, and performance management. You will also build internal and external support systems to support success for those employees. Finally, you will use metrics and analytics to determine the program’s effectiveness at the individual and organizational levels.
